VAPOR BLAST NEWS

Abrasive blasting is nothing new to Fairhaven Shipyard, located in Port of Bellingham, Washington. The shipyard has blasted forty-nine vessels just within the last ten months.
Up until 2012, when they blasted, the shipyard used slurry blasting for the ship hulls, using water rings on sandblasting rigs. But their slurry blasting system was far from perfect.  The biggest issue they had was the amount of water and media the system used, which meant more containment time and cost.
For the past three years, Fairhaven has used to vapor abrasive blasting to help save on containment and clean-up time.
